In addition to focusing on the cognitive developmental needs of our kindergartners we also develop the social, emotional and physical development.
Social interaction skills
We have a daily morning group session where all the kids have the opportunity to join together in assembly social hour. Socialization involves many variable experiences and interactions. therefore our staff have a clear understanding of values, morals, attitudes and behaviors.
Small motor skills are developed in such areas as: cut and paste, stringing, handwriting and board time. Also BINGO games and word games.
Large motor skills are developed by giving children the opportunity to ride bikes, climb the rock wall, jump rope, play and climb on the jungle gym and teacher directed activities. These areas of development are crucial to a child’s healthy growth.
It is Nu Building Blocks goal to ensure that each child receive all the necessary areas of development in order to be competitive in any school of choice as they continue their educational career beyond Nu Building Blocks.
By offering all the opportunities for growth in social/emotional, physical and cognitive development, it is our goal that each child will leave Nu Building Blocks with heightened self-esteem and an enthusiasm for learning. With the preschool experience as a basis for their educational experience, they will continue to develop their comprehension skills, problem solving abilities and social interaction skills.
